Dancers at Whitehaven Carnival 2005

Although there was not as many floats this year there was a lot of dancers. The success of Billy Elliot and dance talent shows on the television seems to be encouraging  plenty of young people to give it a go. This is fortunate for the carnival because not only do they perform during the parade they also put on a show in the park afterwards.
